PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Diver Course

Buoyancy control is important for a number of reasons, including:

  • There is no other skill as critical to the protection of the fragile marine environment. Divers whose buoyancy is not under control tend to damage coral and other aquatic life, and stir up silt (which diminishes the enjoyment of others).
  • Divers whose buoyancy is under control move more efficiently and use less air.
  • In-control divers are not overweighted and are thus less likely to be the victims of diving accidents.

Buoyancy ControlUnfortunately, students in entry-level diver training courses lack the time and experience needed to truly master critical buoyancy control skills. That’s why there is the PADI Peak Performance Buoyancy Specialty Diver course. This entire course is devoted to nothing but buoyancy control skills. Topics covered include proper weighting, intelligent BC use and breath control.
